Fury vs Wilder 2: What has been said?

Deontay Wilder recalls being shocked when Tyson Fury got up off the canvas in their first fight after seeing him sprawled out ‘like a murder scene’.

Wilder told talkSPORT: “It was amazing to see. My face showed the impression of surprise.

“Like I was surprised because when you hit a guy, most of the time when I hit guys, they fall and especially how I stood over him and saw his eyes go in the back of his head and his neck was pulsing out with veins.

“With hot blood going straight down him because his body is reacting and to see his body on the canvas like a murder scene, it was surprising to see him get up.

“Inside I was like ‘yeah’. I threw my hands up in the air because we were living up to the hype of the fight and I can only imagine the people in the arena or people at home or listening to it on the radio will hear ‘he goes down. Wilder knocked him down’.

“Now when you hear about Wilder knocking somebody down in your heart you are like ‘damn it’s over’ because that’s what I do. It made it a thrilling fight.”
